Re-release of BiblioCraft v1.7.5 and a BiblioWoods BoP edition fix.

Two issues came up this evening that I wanted to address straight away. First it turns out my BiblioCraft v1.7.5 release was no fully cross compatible, something about how the different versions compile caused a crash with the armor stand in MC v1.7.10. So I re-released BiblioCraft v1.7.5 with a separately compiled version for MC v1.7.2 and another for MC v1.7.10.

There was also an issue with seats in the Biomes O’ Plenty edition of BiblioWoods so I fixed that and uploaded that. Find the new version, v1.6, on the Addons page of this website.

Hopefully I have all the bugs worked out with this version so I can start working on the next feature set soon. Enjoy! :)

BiblioCraft v1.7.5 released and lots of BiblioWoods!

BiblioCraft v1.7.5 is officially released. This version is cross compatible with both Minecraft v1.7.2 and v1.7.10. I also fixed a bug with the potion shelf not showing text when wearing the reading glasses. Mostly, all the features of BiblioCraft v1.7.4 now work in Minecraft v1.7.2, which means BiblioWoods support for Minecraft v1.7.2.

Speaking of BIblioWoods, I also just release an updated version of the Biomes O Plenty edition which fixes tile entities (important fix!, please update if you downloaded the previous version) and I also released updated version of the Forestry edition, Natura edition, and Highlands edition! Head on over to the “Addons” page to find the download links for all 4 BiblioWoods editions.

As always, Head on over to the Downloads page for the newest BiblioCraft download and if you have any comments, questions or bug reports please post in the either comments below, on the official minecraft forum thread, or leave an issue on my github. Enjoy! :)

BiblioWoods is making a comeback!

This just in, I have officially released the BiblioCraft addon: BiblioWoods Biomes O’ Plenty edition for Minecraft v1.7.10 and BiblioCraft v1.7.4. This is the first of the many BiblioWoods addons I plan to get updated. Since the last release, Biomes O’ Plenty has added 2 new woods and removed one old wood so I added support for the new woods. I’ve also added support for my newer wood blocks with all the woods including the Fancy sign and Fancy workbench. Hopefully there won’t be any issues, I tested a bit and everything seems to be working good.

As a side note, please check out my Patreon if you would like another way to show your support. The more support I can get through Patreon, the more time I will be able to put into BiblioCraft development, including these kinds of addons.

BiblioCraft v1.7.4 released!

Time for an update. I fixed a couple of crashes and added .obj models for 6 of the wooden blocks. That basically means 2 things, first is these new models use a standard plank texture which means it will use the plank textures from whatever texture pack you are using. So texture packs are automatically support on most blocks now. Secondly it means that the BIblioWoods addons will be much easier for me to maintain and get fully updated for Minecraft 1.7.10. BiblioWoods will be my next goal before I start a new feature set for BiblioWoods, so you can look forward to that sometime soonish.

Head on over to changelog to see a complete list of changes and then head over to the downloads page to find the newest release. As always, if you have any comments, questions or bug reports feel free to leave a comment on the website, post on the official thread on the minecraft forums, or leave an issue on my github.

BiblioCraft v1.7.3 for Minecraft v1.7.10 release, Patreon and Twitter

Its that time again, time for an update. With the release of Minecraft v1.7.10 today and with forge having a working pre-release, I was able to move my dev environment to Minecraft 1.7.10 and update BiblioCraft. There was only 1 major change in forge that affected Bibliocraft and that was related to bounding boxes. That meant that older versions of BiblioCraft will crash on 1.7.10, so, you will have to update BiblioCraft to this new version to run 1.7.10. In this version I fixed the signs not shifting forward when right clicked with a screw gun as well as added default support for Blood Magic and Gregtech items / tools on some of the BiblioCraft blocks.

In other news, after seeing the success of some of the other Minecraft modders on Patreon, I decided to give it a try and setup a page. Check out my Patreon page and become a patron if you would like to help support me and help me afford more hours I can put into BiblioCraft. :D This could potentially help me out a lot and even potentially put me in a place where I could make BiblioCraft my full time job. How amazing would that be?, both for me and you. So check me out at http://www.patreon.com/nuchaz and tell all your friends.

Also, I would like to officially announce my twitter feed. I sorta kinda started using it just before my last big feature release and with the advent of patreon I would like to use it as a more general means of keeping everyone up to date on what I might be working on and I may share screenshots from time to time. So also check that out at http://twitter.com/Mozzerello and spread that to all your friends.

Finally, if you run into any bugs or have any questions or suggestions or anything, either leave a comment down below, head over to the official forum thread on the Minecraft Forum (link above) or create an issue on github. Head on over to the downloads page to grab the shiny new BiblioCraft v1.7.3 release and as always, Enjoy! :)

BiblioCraft v1.7.1 released!

BiblioCraft has been updated to v1.7.1. This update includes the ability to add carpet under seats much like the tables as well as updated translations and some tweaks to the tooltips on the fancy signs to help fit some of the translations a little better. It is still not quite as perfect as I would like, but it is definitely an improvement on the tooltips. I may fiddle with that more in the future, but for now, the tooltips should be a little more readable if you’re using one of the translations that used more space.

I also changed the iron fancy lamp recipe, the default recipe costs a little more now, but there is an alternate recipe that uses iron nuggets if you have a mod that has iron nuggets. Thanks to the forge dictionary for making that easy to do.

The lock and key has also been updated to support the sword pedestal, the fancy signs and the fancy workbench. I also added a recipe for the lock and key, but that is disabled by default and can be enabled easily within the config file.

Take a look at the changelog for full details on what changed and head on over to the downloads page to get the newest version. If you have any questions, comments, or problems feel free to post in the comments here on my website, on the official forum thread on the minecraft forums or make an issue on my github page. As always, Enjoy! :D

BiblioCraft v1.7.0 is released!

17update

Here it is, hot off the presses, BiblioCraft v1.7.0! Lots of fancy new features in this one. I am quite happy with the Fancy Signs, and whole Fancy Workbench and Recipe Book system as well as the Big book, among other things. I included the most up to date translations as of earlier this evening and as more languages get updated, I’ll update the download of BiblioCraft to include the newest ones. There is still quite a bit that could be translated, but there is at least 7 or 8 languages with complete support. I will probably do a language update within the next week just to include all the newest language files.

Also hot of the presses for this release, my good friend ShabbyQ made a video that shows off the new features in 1.7.0. I highly recommend everyone check it out!

If you have any questions or comments or run into any bugs, please feel free to post on the comments here on this website, or on the forum, or leave the issue up on github. As always, Enjoy! :D

Preview + Translation files ready for BiblioCraft v1.7.0!

I am getting quite close now to wrapping up development on BiblioCraft v1.7.0. I have uploaded the final translation file to github and am ready to start accepting new translations. There is two ways to submit translations, 1 is directly on github, which is where all translations will eventually end up. Alternatively, we now have a google spreadsheet that can be freely edited for translations. This should make it much simpler for those who do not use github to help me update my translations. If you cannot use github, I would prefer you use this spreadsheet found here. BiblioCraft Multi Language Translation Spreadsheet. Huge thanks to AliceinGame for putting this together!

So, if you would like to help out, please head on over to either github or the spreadsheet and translate some stuff! The entire community will be thankful. :D

Again, links for clarity:
Github: https://github.com/Nuchaz/BiblioCraft
Spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AggxGxCBpJuDdC04WjVpZUlkbVN0TEQtdl9Md1cwVnc#gid=1

Finally, here is a few preview pics to show off what is coming in this next release. There is 7 new blocks / items. A fancy workbench that can make and use recipes books. Big books, which have tons of formatting options and lots of pages. Both big books and recipe books are fully supported by the printing press as well. Fancy signs which can be places on walls, floors and ceilings and have lots of formatting options including the ability to place 2 items on it and scale, position, and rotate them to get the sign you always wanted. Sword pedestals that give off redstone when a sword is present. Slotted books which are 1 page books with a slot to store an itemstack. Hide stuff on your bookcase with it. There is also a low tech screw gun called the hand drill, for those who want a more old fashioned feel and finally a desk bell, because why not? ;)

Now there is just a small handful of issues left for me to clean up and fix and I will be ready to release this update into the wild for everyone to enjoy. Here is a few pics, Enjoy! :D

Short Animation Goodness

Today I just wanted to share this short animation with everyone. I put this together for a good friend of mine, ShabbyQuotient. You may have seen some of his BiblioCraft mod spotlights that I’ve posted on here in the past. Check out his youtube channel and give him a subscribe! I made the animation as an intro ShabbyQ can use in his videos and he posted just the animation first to celebrate 1 year of making youtube videos.

Check out the animation below!

BiblioCraft v1.6.3 released!

I just released a new version with a couple bug fixes and one addition. I added a GUI for the redstone book. Just right click with the redstone book to open and you will have a place where you can change the name of the book. The name then also looks like a normal book name. There is also a description in the book to explain how it can be used. Other than that I fixed the printing press recipe so it required a iron pressure plate again instead of the gold pressure plate I had it accidently set to since BiblioCraft v1.6.0. I also did a tweak to the clipboard and made it so you can hold down keyboard keys when typing in it now. For example now you can hold down the backspace key instead of having to tap it for each letter.

Head on over to the downloads page to download it. If you have any comments or questions feel free to leave them here in the comments, on the minecraft forum from the forum link up above, or through github. As always, Enjoy! :)
